    Senior Software Engineer to join the Hydra team & work on the next big thing for the Cardano ecosystem.

    Role overview

    Want to work in a cutting-edge, research-driven project with an impact on millions of users?

    IO Global is searching for a Senior Software Engineer to join the Hydra team and work with us on the next big thing for the Cardano ecosystem. As a vital part of the Basho era, Hydra supports the growth and adoption of Cardano. By increasing the speed of transactions and ensuring low transaction fees, Hydra will be an enabling factor to applications that require these conditions, and it will be off-loading transactions from the main chain. Based on research done at IOG, we are creating the first implementation of the Hydra protocols as a full functionality layer-two solution for Cardano, providing scalability with the same level of security.

    Within our team of seasoned Haskell engineers, you'll be working on the implementation of a "hydra-node", which is a decentralized, event-sourced backend application acting as a component in a layer 2 stack for the Cardano network. Blockchain interaction (Utxo-based ledger + Plutus scripts in our case), networking, cryptography, APIs, persistence and resilience are some of the topics that engage us.

    We develop in an agile, amenable, and iterative approach inspired by eXtreme Programming (XP) and its values. Despite (or rather because of) the fact that we all work in a fully remote setting, we communicate daily and prefer working in an ensemble/pair programming setting as much as possible. But we also leave room for some more traditional solo programming with pull requests. Most of the time, we drive our development using end-to-end, integration, unit, and (our favorite) property tests.

    Although we only use Haskell in this project, extensive knowledge and expertise in it is not required as we try to practice "non-fancy" (aka simple or boring) Haskell. Instead, experience in one or more areas of our domain, seniority in another statically typed or functional programming language, substantial experience in building, delivering, and running distributed systems, as well as willingness to learn are more important to us.

    We look for someone who shares our values and mentality to create working software in a highly collaborative and iterative way, strives for correctness and simplicity, and appreciates our open discussion culture.

    Your mission

    As a Software Engineer at IOG, you are responsible for writing high-quality code for our products. You have the exciting challenge of working on cutting-edge technology focusing on the market's needs. To support you on this challenge, our product teams have software architects, product managers, and research specialists with whom you must communicate professionally, effectively, and efficiently.

    Your responsibilities

    • Following¬†agile¬†software¬†development¬†and open source best practices
    • Working with¬†teams¬†across multiple time zones in pair- and ensemble-programming sessions, but also¬†independently¬†on software¬†development¬†tasks

    • Writing¬†documentation¬†and technical user manuals.

    Requirements


    Your expertise

    • A degree in¬†Computer¬†Science is desirable but¬†not¬†essential
    • Practical experience working in¬†agile¬†software¬†development¬†projects
    • Minimum of three years experience in a statically typed or¬†functional¬†programming language;¬†Haskell¬†is¬†ideal,¬†but¬†not¬†strictly required
    • An appreciation of the value of¬†test-driven¬†development¬†and formal methods (ie. correctness), and¬†ideally¬†a knowledge of property-based¬†testing
    • Background¬†in working with (UTXO)¬†blockchains,¬†distributed¬†systems/networking,¬†cryptography,¬†or¬†owning¬†open-source projects is beneficial
    • Experience with¬†nix¬†and¬†docker¬†to¬†build¬†and distribute code is beneficial
    • Solid written and spoken communication skills in English.
